Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that occurs after a traumatic event beyond your control, such as a natural disaster, sexual assault, or events during combat. PTSD can cause intrusive thoughts and memories of the traumatic event, leading to extreme distress and difficulty functioning in day-to-day life. People with PTSD may experience flashbacks, nightmares, intense fear when exposed to reminders of the trauma, difficulty sleeping or concentrating, changes in their mood, and may benefit greatly from professional counseling and interaction with others with similar issues. If you think you or a loved one may be struggling with PTSD, then seeking help is the first step in getting the treatment and recovery that is needed.
Veterans Freedom Retreat (VFR) helps veterans identify and process their distressing thoughts and feelings related to the trauma they experienced. In addition, VFR addresses the veteran’s partner who has experienced secondary PTSD from living with the veteran, and provides support and resources to help them cope with these experiences.
